    Penashue is done. How many people were at his meeting? 10?

    Peter, do the honourable thing and spare us the embarrassment. Stay home and stay quiet; that way you can keep them guessing; once you open your mouth, you remove all doubt.

    Peter did good. So what if Newfoundland had to wait a few months for Labrador to get funding. In the end, both got what they needed. Newfoundland just had to be a little altruistic and wait for the common good.

    Who write this stuff? Federally, Labrador is a safe Liberal seat. Since Confederation, it has voted Liberal consistently except for the Penashue win, and will go Liberal again after this election. Only Todd Russell could have lost that seat in the last election for the Liberals. Provincially, the voters in Cartwright-L"Anse au Claire are still voting for Joey Smallwood, the north coast was Liberal until Garfield Warren crossed the floor to run for the Tories. He didn't last long and it went Liberal again, except for a short run after Wally Andersen quit. Lake Melville usually goes Liberal, and will again in the next election. The only district that might be up for grabs is in LabWest. Sure they complain. Everybody in Canada does. I lived in western Canadaand they hate Ottawa. Quebec hates everybody. The bottom line is that Penahue knows he's in deep trouble and is playing the only card he has.

    ''Williams at least spoke for the whole province.'' He certainly didn't speak for me.

      No but I bet Lorraine Michael speaks your language!

      ...and you're not the whole province. It's a turn of phrase.

    Labrador has enough resources to survive very successfully on it's own , similar to the Yukon. We have had enough of the gouging by the government of the island portion of the province whom feel that this place is only here for their profit.
